Free Book Friday: Is It Live Or Is It Memorex?


Buttercup has a Mini-Me!

Left–the new chubby kitten who just Showed Up on the farm out of nowhere. Yes, we actually stopped producing kittens so now people are just dropping them off. He has been called Chuck, Buddy, Scooby, and Tiger so far. We’re still waiting for consensus on a name. Buttercup (below) is not amused either by the striking resemblance or the new addition to the feline family. He’d like to name his Mini-Me something more like Go Away And Don’t Come Back.

In the meantime, I have a new FAQs page! A few weeks ago I collected questions, and the page is up with as many questions and answers as I could! Check it out! Feel free to add a new question at the bottom of the page in the Comments section. Lots of other updates on my site (by the way, my daughter took that new photo of me on the Home page–and unlike her brother, she took it for free!). I’ve also got some info up on my upcoming Silhouette Romantic Suspense “Haven” series you can see here.

:elephant:Drop a line and let me know what you think, and be in the running for your autographed pick from my contemporary backlist! Winner announced Monday!

  3. Mechele Armstrong says:

    LOL I can just picture the new little one doing that.

    I didn’t realize until just now…Buttercup (and Mini me) looks very much like my cat :shock:. Only less cat. :mrgreen: My Arwen is pleasantly plump.

  4. Maureen says:

    It’s freezing in PA too. You sure Buttercup isn’t hiding something from you lol.

  14. Stefanie says:

    It’s freezing here too. It has even been snowing here a bit!:weather:
    The cats look really adorable. I’ve once had a cat that looked like yours, but he died. The one that we have now looks more brown. And she has long hair.:shimmy:
    Oh btw, I love the FAQ page.

  15. Tammy G. says:

    Those were good questions & answers on your FAQs page! I love all the pictures you have there too. I love cats!

  16. Shari C says:

    your new series sounds very exciting; can’t wait for the first book to come out.
    Your new arrival is such a cutie and I can see why Buttercup would like the new kitten to somehow just disappear…a little bit jealous, hmmm.

  17. Mary J says:

    Really liked the new FAQs page

  18. Aisling says:

    Those kittens are so so cute!:smile:

  19. MD says:

    The Haven series looks great

  20. Dena says:

    I love cats,we have 2 now,our 14 year old just past away in December.We used to have a orange tabby when I was a teenager. He was all orange with no white though. His name was Jake and he was a great hunter even though he had plenty to eat.I think you should consider Jake for a name.It’s different and fitting.

  21. Karen B says:

    You have such a fun site! Great FAQ and love all your pictures.

  22. Minna says:

    :weather: It’s snowing here in Finland too, but I’m not complaining. For a while there it looked like there would be hardly any snow at all this winter. And I won’t say it’s freezing until the temperature is -30 Celsius. :cold:

    Awww, those cats look so adorable!

  23. kacey says:

    Great job on the new FAQ page! Love the pictures of WVA. It’s so gorgeous there…

    and…poor Buttercup…:hissyfit:

  24. Angie-la says:

    Your kitties are the same color as my Trudie-cat! Only she is real fluffy..more of a long haired feline.
    She even has the same color eyes.
    I want another cat, but the DH says no more animals. 😡
    Come on, we only have 4 dogs, a cat and a bird. 😆
    One more cat won’t take up that much space…and since we live in the country, thaey keep the rodents out of the house! :yes:

  25. Susan says:

    Wow! I loved all your answers and pictures on the FAQ page!:thumbsup: Your DD took a great picture of you.:shimmy:

  26. alissa says:

    Adorable kitties and your series sounds wonderful.

  27. RobynL says:

    Very nice picture taken by daughter. Poor Buttercup, just go with the flow; it makes life a lot easier.

  28. Laurie G says:

    How about Sunshine for Mini Me’s new name?
    Love your new site update!
    Wow! You look great!
    Haven also sounds quite interesting!
    Best of luck with your writing!
